Led Zeppelin's interactive new video for "Brandy & Coke" – the rough mix of "Trampled Under Foot" that appeared on last month's deluxe Physical Graffiti reissue – allows users to peer into windows in the building on the original cover. When the record originally came out, it showed two conjoined buildings from Manhattan's East Village with die-cut windows, so the inner sleeves could either show the band's name and album title or clip-art-style vignettes. The new clip takes it one step further.
